This is my mother’s penmanship certificate from 1925 when she was in high school.  It measures 11×18 and is a beautiful work of art in itself.

Years later in junior high I got a handwriting certificate.  Much, much smaller, no art work, no seal, no frame, and only a stamped signature by the principal.

I'm married, I have two daughters and two grandchildren and they all love MV. Enjoy my MV blog and contact me if I can answer any questions. This blog started out as strictly about Martha's Vineyard but over the years I've branched out to include other obsessions and interests. I enjoy photography and like sharing my photos here as well. Hope you enjoy :)

  1. in the second grade my daughter had a note sent home re: her ATROCIOUS handwriting…..i told her, “if you practice, i’ll bet you could get a penmanship award”…..well, she did, and she did!!!! stayed up on our wall for years!!!! i agree, the first one is much more detailed and important looking….but they are both awards and something to be proud of!!

  2. I agree. I don’t think they even teach handwriting/penmanship anymore. Sad.
